The sun-shell in the transmission has cracked if you do not have reverse, and are in a low gear range with no overdrive. As for the grinding, that is the remnants of the sun-shell.

unfortunately what it sounds like is the transfer case like you suspect. inside are bearings and gears and a chain what happens is the chain will stretch and cause this problem it will actually jump the teeth on the gears, you will need to have the chain replaced in the transfer case. sorry to have to tell you this but i hope it helps.

Dark fluid usally means that the clutches are worn. The black dust from the worn clutches makes the fluid dark. You could try changing the filter and fuild, but most likely the damage is done.

1999 gmc suburban rpms go up but car does,nt go any faster

Have you checked the transmission fluid level?  Also, have you changed the transmission filter?  I would definately do these two before I would take it to a shop.  A typical transmission filter/gasket kit costs about $10-15 for that truck.  And the transmission fluid will run around $2-4 per quart.
Changing the filter is easy.  You will just take the transmission pan off and then pull the filter out, replace the filter, and then replace the pan gasket.  Then bolt it all back up and fill it with fluid!  It's that simple.
